Morning Church! In my post yesterday regarding the siege on the Capitol, I indicated that I was sad and disappointed. My little friend Aubree heard about it and sent me a gift. I was blest to receive it. May You also be blest when you watch it. You may need a tissue...I know I did. Aubree, you made me feel so special and your song blessed me and will bless many others.
